Elizabeth McConnell Bliss and
Reid Jarl Bliss Scholarships
The Bliss Scholarship endowment allowed me to work on the characterization of a bacteriophage of Bordetella avium during my senior year. I worked closely with biology professor Louise Temple researching the bacteria that attack birds and viruses that, in turn, attack those bacteria. I presented data from this work at a regional seminar. I am now working with BAE Systems at the Naval Surface Warfare Center's Dahlgren Laboratory.
